This Intriguing Freestyle Bicycle Video Has A Pleasant Commercial Airliner Surprise In It.



In addition to all things aviation, I am also into all things bicycle.  I call cycling my "Me" time, with a wonderful health benefit attached to it.  Therefore, when someone puts out a cool cycling video, I tend to pay attention to it.

From time-to-time, someone puts out an interesting freestyle video.  Even rarer is someone who does their tricks on a road bike.  Even rarer still is someone who utilizes commercial airliners as their terrain of choice.  Check out the excellent footage (appears to be KMHV), and pay special attention from 1:05 to 1:38, as the rider uses some airliners in a way the manufacturer's never foresaw.

While the video is indeed fun to watch, the imminent death of an airliner is always hard to take.

At The MAVTV 500 2015 With The Med-Flite: One Tool You Hope You'll Never Need.


View from my office in Race Operations for the MAVTV 500 IndyCar race.  An EC-135 at the ready sits on the helipad on Friday, 06-26.  It turned into a Bell 412 on Saturday, raceday.

To the right of the pad is the Infield Care Center, at the top is Turn-4, and the party tent is A.J. Foyt Racing's hospitality tent for the weekend.

Shot location, Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, CA., 4-miles NE of ONT, 5-miles SW of Rialto, L67 (now closed).
